Contemporary Furniture, Modern Furniture
We have rounded up some of our favorite sources for modern, contemporary furniture and home decor accessories. Some of the sites are not well indexed by the search engines, so we think you will find this group of modern furniture suppliers useful. It really is a wonderful thing to have the Internet and be able to reach sources for modern design that were out of our orbit previously. Some of these companies are high end and sold to designers only but many of them are offering affordable knocks-offs of Italian and Scandinavian designs to everyone. .

LAFurniture--They have Italian style contemporary leather sofas just like I want and I think the prices are great. Just a couple years ago I could not find any cool circular sofas online for under 7 grand, now there are many selections. This is wonderful. I have writted this company about getting some color swatches , I think they have just what I want ! They sent the leather color swatches and I have ordered a sectional sofa , semi-circle in pale blue leather and vinyl where it doesn't matter. Like the photo, only I didnt order all the pieces, my room wasn't large enuf. See photos of the room w/ theleather sofa when it comes at www.ConcreteCottage.com www.lafurniturestore.com
UPDATE: I recevied my sofa, it looked great except there was a smushed in place in the back. I called LA Furniture and they sent out a competent Furniture Doctor who fixed it asap. Everything was fine until about one year and one half later. The front edges of my sofa seats began to crack where the leather part meets the vinyl part. This is not from abuse, no kids, no pets, just two adults who use the sofa in a normal way. It is now apparent that the "leather" parts on the sofa are really super thin leather bonded to some backing material and the vinyl fabric is paper thin vinyl top layer, also bonded to some backer material. I am also noticing more difference in color between the 'leather' parts and the vinyl parts. Originally, it was only a little color difference under incandescent lighting at night. But now, in this sunny room, the difference seems more apparant. I will have to have the entire piece re-upholsytered with in 6 months or so I suspect. My guess is that the fabric covered sofas would last longer than this "leather"/vinyl combo. I cannot recommend it.
Modern Line Furniture--the offerings seem to be about the same as the above website but the difference is that they have imported contemporary furniture in stock. Mostly popular colors are available on the website like brown, black, white and red. Not sure if you can order custom leathers. They do carry a very cool circular sofa that I have seen elsewhere. They offer it in stock for immediate delivery in white, red and black leather or leather/ vinyl mix. Lots of nice looking rectangular sectional sofas. Some make into sofa beds in clever ways. The prices seem great. www.modernlinefurniture.com

Huge offering online and check the clearance section. www.SexyFurnishings.com
CB2--Crate and Barrel--I suppose they are marketing their contemporary stuff using the CB2 name as it sounds more 'modern' than the regular one. New motto is "So You So Affordable" & they have an easy to use website....The motto on th eprinted catalog is "resort to affordable modern" and it is stuff that is rather affordable in price. They have a lot of coordinated room settings and things that must be manufactured for them alone, or at least in their colors. CB2 has everything you would need to outfit an apartment or home. They offer kitchen stuff, winegglasses, dinnerware, furniture, rugs, lamps, do-dads, and some fun acrylic furniture and accessories. They tend to use certain colors and stick with them throughout the entire catalog. The print issue that I have is all about orange and lime, aqua and yellow. I love hot colors, so I think it is great. Indoor and outdoor modern furniture. They also carry bedding and other stuff from Marimekko ® of Finland www.CB2.com

The Sanluca recliner is being put back in production by Poltrona Frau, forty five years after its original creation. Designed by the brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1961, Sanluca's futuristic line was inspired by the sculpture of Boccioni. The ergonomic curves of its headrest, backrest and lower back support give Sanluca a strong visual impact. Re-issued today with a wooden structure and modular upholstered components, Sanluca is an up to date recliner. www.poltronafrau.it
Nils Holger Moormann-Lese+Lebe--I can't say that the sharp edges of this very creative furniture would not cause some discomfort, but it is still great to see a designer thinking in suck multi-function fashion. And, since it is one wheels, that makes this unusual modern sofa / desk combo even more versatile. The back of the two-seater is formed by the shelf that raises and lowers. On the left or right side, a board can be folded down as a table. This makes it possible to access the shelf from both sides. Under the seat are extendable footrests and drawers with a lot of space for filing and stashing clutter. The built in bookcases are a great feature as is the attached lighting. When moving house time comes, just close everything up and hire some strong men !
